HELIX - The Helix Grizzlies' Zach Sundin and Dusty Bennett were the all-stars that led Helix to a 64-27 bashing of Long Creek Friday night.

Bennett and Sundin combined for 25 points and filled up the rest of the stat sheet. Five assists for Sundin, four for Bennett and Sundin had six steals to Bennett's five.

The Grizzlies only had 13 turnovers in the winning effort.

"We played a good game," Helix coach Luke Hegdal said. "The first game where our guys got in rhythm running the offense and getting the ball around. We were taking good shots and playing well defensively."

Rebounding-wise, Sundin had 11 while Jason Bushman had 12 boards and Levi Papineau with nine.

It was a completely different game against Imbler Saturday night as the Grizzlies took a 66-31 drubbing.

"Saturday came around and we didn't have our heads in the game early on," Hegdal said. "They put up a 24-6 score in that first period. By the end of the fourth quarter, I had pulled everyone and let our bench play. The guys off the bench finished strong and really played well. They stepped up, hustled and did some great things.

"Early in the season, we will have some ups and downs but it is good to see our bench and starters performing from time-to-time."

Helix is now 2-5 overall and plays at home Wednesday against Elgin at 7 p.m.
